Pure Fun Foiling with the LF Crew

Kite foiling or foilboarding seems to be the latest trend in kiteboarding this season. The IKA hosts a new and challenging foiling competition this season, called the KiteFoil GoldCup, many riders enjoy riding foilboards and a few major brands are in the process of developing new foil boards to power exciting foilboarding sessions.

The essence of foilboarding is simple. A foil board or hydrofoil board is a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached to the fin area. The hydrofoil extends into the water and helps the board leave the surface of the water at specific speeds. It gives the rider a unique sensation of flight.

The guys at Liquid Force Kites seem to be attracted by this concept. They designed a new hydrofoil prototype and their team is lately playing with it and tweaking. For now, their foil seems a bit slow, but we are sure the final version will be fun and exciting to ride with.
